INNOVATION CENTER FOR STARTUPS
In our hubs in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy we bring your concepts, products and services on one table together with the specific know how of experienced professionals and potential partner firms. We link ideas, challenge business models and business plans in order to ignite the next stage. We get on your schedule and do not march in cohorts like in accelerator programs.
MENTORING & NETWORK FOR STARTUPS
We support you with the right fit of mentors and door openers. Our network provides quality time. We understand mentoring as smart and hands-on work and not as a lifestyle. We let founders be entrepreneurs and coach you on your path to becoming great leaders.

We invest up to € 500k of our own money per case in brilliant teams and business models. In return we receive company shares and then want to work with you to develop your business and add value.

We provide support when you really need something: as a backbone for marketing, finance, legal, with office space, as well as with our own hotel chain, own tourism group with incoming agency and tour operator, our own gastro-shopping-service, e.g. for piloting.And you'll become part of a cool network of our startup companies.
